Athlete of the week: Eli Berregaard


Senior Eli Berregaard ran for 192 yards on 29 carries and two touchdowns including the game winner in overtime for the Tigers against Hempstead.


 How did it feel to score the game winning touchdown in overtime? 

It was good for our team to get the win and get the momentum heading into the playoffs.

What do you want to accomplish in the playoffs?

Obviously a state title would be the ultimate goal, but we’re going to take it one game at a time.

How did you battle back from early injuries to be so successfull this year?

I just kind of gradually got healthier as the year went on, and I feel a lot better now. I’m still trying to get quicker and more explosive.

What are your college plans?

I’m not sure yet. I might play football somewhere, but I don’t know what I want to do yet.
